INFDROPs during large file transfers
Wed Apr 16 08:45:41 PDT 2003
Sorry if this has been solved already, but I searched the archives and
didn't find anything.
kernel 2.4.20 patched with W15
Netgear M301 as master
STA: 1.5.6 RAM upload
kernel 2.4.21-pre6 + ACPI patches
Netgear MA411 in managed mode
STA: 1.3.6 (also tried 1.5.6 RAM)
Both running the latest CVS version of hostap
If I transfer (scp) a large file (> 2MB) from one machine to the other,
dmesg on the notebook shows me a whole bunch if INFDROPS after some
time. The transfer doesn't seem to be affected by it.
I tried different kernel and STA version, no change.
Then I tried different combinations.
Copying a file via scp (20MB):
AP -> notebook 570KB/s no INFDROPS on notebook
notebook -> AP 437KB/s sometimes INFDROPS
AP -> notebook ~520KB/s immediate INFDROPS on notebook
notebook -> AP ~180KB/s sometimes INFDROPS
The INFDROPs could be hardware related but Im not quite sure how to find
that out. Both cards are new so I think they are ok.
The problem thats irritates me the most is the 180KB transfer rate I
get from the notebook to the AP in WEP mode. During the transfer the
load is normal on both machines.
Maybe someone can help me to debug this further.
Thanks in advance,
